Guest Post by Dottie Miller The Prince William County race for School Board Chairman At-Large has become rather confusing for some who aren’t sure who the Republican candidate is.

However, on Sept. 25 — just before the Sept. 30 fundraising deadline, Ebert received a single contribution in the amount of $30,000 from… More Is $30K The New Going Rate To Buy A Commonwealth’s Attorney?

…and Schoeneman’s sour grapes hit piece on Whitbeck, Snyder, Colgate and the RPV Grassroots Challenge success is still ridiculous. I wanted to see if he walked it back, or “put it in context”, etc. Nope. He’s doubled down, both in comments and on social media.

In February I wrote about Scott Rigell’s issue with Rand Paul and his association with the organization National Association for Gun Rights.

Virginia Right has the story and it doesn’t look good for Dr. Siobhan Stolle Dunnavant in Virginia’s 12th Senate race: I received a copy of a letter Dr. Siobhan Stolle Dunnavant sent to her patients concerning her campaign for Virginia Senate in the 12th District. The picture below is a bit small to read, but… More Has Dr. Dunnavant violated HIPAA rules in VA-12? (UPDATED)
I should have known better. I do this kind of stuff for a living. But sometimes even I take a quick look at something and make false assumptions based on what is quickly available.

Meet the Republican nominee for Woodbridge Dist. Supervisor, Steve Chapman, who was endorsed by Board Chairman Corey Stewart in today’s GOP firehouse primary.
There’s a four way fight for the Republican nomination to replace Walter Stosch in Virginia’s 12th District. Former Delegate Bill Janis seems to be the candidate with the largest bullseye on his back given his past representation in part of the district and being the only candidate with elected experience. Vince Haley is making some… More File Under “For Real?” In Virginia’s 12th

A little over a week ago, I wrote here about the slating affair of last year and what its lasting consequences have been, are, and should be. A few days later, I got an email from Delegate Jimmie Massie (R-72nd) expressing his concerns that he was being unfairly named as one of the slaters. He… More Follow-up On Slating… And A Word About The Sully Mess
So it appears that many Republican members of the General Assembly that supported the Cantor/Young Guns-led slating effort at county conventions last year will be unopposed for nomination this year. More’s the pity. These are the very people who need to be held responsible… and when I say ‘held responsible’, I mean ‘defeated and sent… More A year later… “Get over it.” Not a CHANCE.
So, retiring Arlington County Board member Walter Tejada seems worried.
